9780071351270: The M&A Deskbook

Since 2000, US companies closed nearly 8000 deals worth almost $800 billion - including the biggest deal of all time: the merger of Travelers and Citibank to form CitiGroup, a $70-billion-plus deal that created a financial giant. Worldwide mergers and acquisitions were double that amount in the number of deals and dollars. Expers predict even more mega-mergers in the years to come. The need for accurate information to make these deals go smoothly has never been more paramount. This text brings together key words and phrases specific to merger/acquisition and related activities.

"This book is intended for all those interested or participating in the field of activity known as Mergers and Acquisitions. The lexicon itself is structured very much like a traditional dictionary, including syllabification for more accurate pronunciation, parts of speech, business field labels, brief definitions, and numerous cites of usage from the press and business literature. In addition to the traditional material, we have added many thousands of citations from periodicals, books, newscasts, and Internet sites. The scope and breadth of these citations is intended to increase a reader's understanding of the terms as well as their use in the field."
­­From the Introduction

Scope and breadth. No two words could more accurately describe Stanley Foster Reed's The M&A Deskbook. To clarify important definitions, Reed­­assisted by a carefully selected and topically diverse team of M&A and legal experts­­features actual passages from press sources including The Wall Street Journal, The New York Times, Forbes, CNNfn, and other national and local resources. When acronyms may tend to confuse issues, The Deskbook spells them out, and ensures that definitions are unambiguous and certain.

When legal cases may help to explain issues, summaries of such cases are listed according to the best-known litigants. High-tech areas from Silicon Valley (San Jose, California) to SilicoRn Alley (Fairfield, Iowa) are identified. Addresses, phone numbers, and fax numbers are listed for each of the 50 state securities administrators overseeing blue-sky laws­­plus the District of Columbia, Guam, and Puerto Rico.

Scope and breadth. As American English becomes the language of choice for dealmaking around the world, phrases and slang peculiar to the American lexicon can confuse those unfamiliar with the language­­and, truth be told, can baffle even those who count American English as their native tongue. Let The M&A Deskbook chart a safe, sensible course through today's minefield of M&A jargon­­and act as your all-in-one guidebook for quick reference to tricky areas or an educational read-through.
